Austria, Vienna

VII International festival of music and arts “Magic stars of Vienna”

25.12.2018-29.12.2018

from 260 €/person

Located at the foot of the Alps on the banks of the Danube, Vienna has for centuries attracted the monarchs with its beauties, inspired composers and artists. This city is rightly considered the musical capital of Europe. Here lived and worked Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Schubert, Brahms and many other brilliant composers. Nowhere else will you see so many concert and opera halls as in Vienna. Here, the traditions of the balls are still observed, and the famous Viennese waltz is one of the greatest objects of the intangible heritage of the world. The most famous are "The Tales of the Vienna Woods" and "On the Beautiful Blue Danube," the latter being considered the unofficial anthem of Vienna and all of Austria. Both created the great Johann Strauss-son, who was called the "king of waltzes". The fusion of many cultures over the centuries has created a unique atmosphere in which creative nature can reveal its talent full. In Vienna was born, perhaps, the most famous Austrian artist Gustav Klimt. The life of the great Friedensreich Hundertwasser is connected with the city, whose fairy-tale houses have become an integral part of the portrait of Vienna.
